ESOL Classes


English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

ESOL classes are offered for adult students at all proficiency levels wishing to improve their English language skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. All classroom instruction is conducted in English. Classes also integrate the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and self-sufficiency. Instruction in U.S. Citizenship preparation covers basic civics education, and the citizenship application process.

As a result of ESOL class participation, students are better equipped to:

  • Help their children in their educational development
  • Communicate with students' school teachers and administrators
  • Improve career options and opportunities
  • Become more productive and responsible citizens 

Class Schedule

Classes meet for a minimum of 6 hours a week. They are available Monday through Saturday, during the day and in the evening, at several locations throughout the Northside Independent School District.
